Woman, son found murdered
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 12
A 62-year-old woman and her son were found murdered at their home in Rohini Sector 5 this afternoon.

The victims have been identified as Usha Mishra, a widow, and her son Jitendra Mishra (40). The police are probing the possibility of a robbery. The house showed signs of ransacking. But since they were the only occupants of the house, the police have no one to claim what is missing from the house.

This has also led the police to probe if the victims were murdered over a personal enmity. Foe the past two years, Jitendra is fighting a legal case against the family of his wife, who had died in March 2012. His late wife, Pratibha, had accused him of torturing her during their stay together.

The bodies were discovered by a neighbour at one of their two houses about 12 noon. Their neighbour, Manorama Upadhyay, had noticed the doors of the house open. She had entered the house and found Usha lying dead on a bed in the room. She bore deep wounds on her head and face, which appeared to have been inflicted by a heavy object. Jitendra was found dead in another room.

The police took the victims to a nearby hospital where doctors declared them dead. The police found that the assaulters gained a friendly entry into the house.

Sources said a man's wallet containing an identity card was found from the site of the incident. The police are verifying if the recovered items are connected to the murders.

The CCTV camera footage from locations outside different houses near the site of the incident has not revealed any clue to the murder.

Jitendra's married sister Suman suspected his late wife's family to be behind the murder. "A few days before the death of my brother's wife, about a dozen people had entered our house and beaten my mother and Jitendra. They (family of Jitendra's wife) must have killed them," she alleged. However, a police officer said both the families had filed separate cases soon after the incident, each accusing the other of assault.

Polls: JNU, DU witness low voter turnout; results to be out today
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 12
The election fervour at JNU and DU appeared to be at its peak today with the much-awaited polling for electing the student unions coming to an end. The scenes at both university campuses and colleges were different from each other - JNU reverberating in echoes of songs and drums while DU campuses had more of parties' sloganeering.

The polling percentage of JNU stood at around 54-55 per cent, one per cent decline from last year's figure as per the JNU election committee while DU's morning session polling from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm remained at 42.3 per cent with KMC recording the highest polling 44.7 per cent.

The polling at JNU was delayed by almost an hour owing to delay in arrangements due to a late night all-party meeting yesterday over violation of model code of conduct while at DU it started early in the morning.

The maximum crowd and queues were seen post-lunch at JNU while at DU majority voters dropped in late morning and later in the evening in the evening colleges. At JNU, votes were cast through ballot papers except digital-based platform introduced for visually challenged students which received a good response. Another new feature in JNUSU elections this time was the NOTA option.

While nearly 8,200 students were prospective voters in JNU over one lakh students were registered for DUSU elections which were held in 50 DU colleges through 750 electronic voting machines. Counting for the top panel and around 31 councillor posts of JNUSU began late tonight while DU's counting will take place tomorrow.
